1972 Corvette LT-1 Coupe

VIN: 1Z37L2S521617

Elkhart Green over Black Factory Upgraded (called “Custom”) Interior

Numbers matching. One of 1,638 LT-1s built for 1972, fewer than 6,000 total built across the three year product cycle. The LT-1 was the ultimate small block configuration, which cost as much to upgrade to as the 454 big block package, and included a solid lifter version of the iconic 350 motor with a 6,500 RPM redlined tach, in 4 speed only, larger exhaust, with all the suspension and brake upgrades that came with a 454 car, and a big block hood with unique striping and call-outs. Given the expense, the LT-1 represented only 15% of all Corvettes built that year. 1972 was the final year for the C3 steel front and rear bumpers, as well as the last year for the C3 LT-1. 1972 was also the only year where the LT-1 option was included in the VIN number, making package verification as built easy.


Represented in factory-specified Elkhart Green (6.5 % of total 1972 Corvette production, so potentially one of only 106 LT-1s built in this color) over a Black Upgraded or “Custom” interior, this car was purchased by the current owner in 2007 with no prior receipts and has been treated to an open check book approach to maintenance as well as a sympathetic restoration.

This high performance Corvette LT-1 is spectacular, with the only significant deviation from stock being a replacement aftermarket center console to house an DIN-sized Alpine Bluetooth-enabled stereo with speakers added to the front kicker panels in addition to the factory dash units. The original uncut OEM center console and factory radio will be included with the vehicle for those who prefer a fully original look.
